Bump goes to the Market and the High Waist Skirt (pregnant version)

Topic : Daily Glimpses

Hope your weekend was good, ours flew by again. They always do…
We were in town and able to do one of our favorite things during the summer- Farmers Market!
Took Miss Avery, she did really well and didn’t try to attack any others dogs…this is a very positive step for her.

: )

Me and Avery at the Farmers Market

I am wearing a very “maternity” looking shirt. Got it from Gap Maternity, I like it pretty well. It is somewhat tight in the chest….and I do not have an ample chest so, this may or may not work for you if your girls are bigger than mine.
But it is very cute and I think I will be able to keep growing into it as the summer goes on.

You see that I have the best accessory to any outfit- Avery! She was a big hit. 🙂

We got these beautiful flowers….

I put them in stemless wine glasses, very nice to do if you don’t have any small vases.
Very Martha Stewart of me isn’t it?
: )

Rest of the weekend was relaxing and we did have a movie date to see Men in Black III- very cheesy, wouldn’t recommend. :/

I did try out a new skirt for our movie date and I was happy with the results.
I’ve gotten really into Old Navy Maternity and Old Navy in general…they have good deals, cheap prices and the clothes fit pretty well.
I do know the quality is somewhat questionable…as in one wash and there were holes in some of my tee shirts BUT I when I hung the rest of my Old Navy shirts to dry I don’t get any holes.
Time consuming but saved the tops.
Your call on if you want to hang-to-dry your cotton tees..

But onto the skirt!

This is a non-maternity skirt that I bought in a couple sizes larger than my usual. In real life you are supposed to wear it up on your natural waist, in pregnant Emma life I wore it across the bump and have room to grow.

From the front with this look, you don’t really look pregnant.
There were some point during the day I realized I might just look a wide in the waist but really, at this point, who cares?

Tried the skirt with the waistband up over the bump but it didn’t look right…waistband under the bump is still cute and very comfortable with the wide elastic waistband.

Waistband below the bump…

I thought it was pretty cute and I know it was comfortable! I like the bright print and in the summer heat, skirts are such a great way to go.

For an update in the skirt pictures I am at 23 weeks, that means this coming week I’ll hit 24 weeks or 6 months!!!
Feeling good and baby is wiggling more and more.
: )

I have a pool date with a girlfriend this weekend so get ready for some maternity swimsuit reviews…this might be fun or terrifying….we shall see!

Till the next post~

    Emma, I have the same problem with Tess who is not quite 22 months. Still nursing and sometimes refuses to eat. We add raw sprouted protein to her smoothies. Not a huge amount but just a little. She will almost always eat eggs, pancakes and bacon (I'd very easily be ovolactovegetarian but Daddy is a meat eater) or eggs, guacamole, Brown rice and black beans. Or avocado. Those are my only two "go to" meals. And carbs. She'll eat cookies or crackers for days. Glad the doctor was supportive, I've been thinking about going there as well. I'm sick of the weaning conversation.

      Scrambled eggs are a hit so I'm going to keep offering, avocado too.. I was impressed by Little Flower, it is so refreshing to be in a place that supports breastfeeding. Not a formula pamphlet in the place. And applause for continuing to breastfeed? Makes me want to go daily! It's far by driving standards (least from our house) but worth it to be able to not get hassled about parenting choices.

    Wow, I'm so glad we aren't the only ones who have gone through all these ups and downs with nursing. G is still nursing strong at 14.5 months. There were times when I swore he was weaning himself (8/9 months, and I cried and cried), and nowadays lately he nurses like a newborn. Some days I have so much milk that I'm still spurting and needing nursing pads, other days I think he looks at me like, "Turn it on, mama!" I think the lesson after we have put all this time in it should be: our babies and our bodies know what to do! :)
